Wagner Statement On Governor Wolf Doing Obama’s, Pelosi’s Bidding On Redistricting
2018 gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner tonight issued the following statement after Governor Wolf overstepped his constitutional authority and submitted his own map to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in order to further the agenda of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.
“Tonight’s news makes it clear that Governor Wolf has no interest in drawing fair maps, and is more concerned about doing the bidding of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the national, liberal interest groups that will be funding his reelection,” said Wagner. “Our leaders in the House and Senate did everything they were required to do by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court when the drew the new maps, and even offered to hold more hearings in order to get the solution right and avoid a constitutional crisis. Governor Wolf, however, knows the progressive agenda has failed at the ballot box, and is intent on taking matters in his own hands for the sole purpose of giving Democrats more seats. I urge our Senate leadership to take legal action to return control of this process to its rightful place – the legislature.”
